there was a bill in the united states senate. and what it would do is extend tax cuts for 98% of the families here in massachusetts and 97% of small businesses. and senator brown voted no. now why did he vote no? because they weren't enough tax breaks for the top 2% and the top 3%. for me this is just an example of whose side you stand on. are you holding out? are you hanging in there for the top 2%? are eager to fight for working people. >> excuse me. with all due respect, you're misrepresenting my record. and the only person in this race he was hurt in the middle class wants to raise taxes as professor warren. she would not have supported president obama's compromise bill that not only kept taxes low for everybody for the last two years, but also take care of an employment benefits. she would not have supported that because the fee increases -- sorry, the fact we didn't tax more a high income earners. so she would've been about taxing one taxpayer middle-class people. this is about 700,000 jobs. i did make those numbers up, but 3.4 trillion are all things you have said. he won another million in

calling for calm. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content, and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> elsewhere, in iran, a senior cleric reportedly upped the bounty for the killing of author salman rushdie, whose book "the satanic verses" sparked global protests more than two decades ago, after the late imam khomeini declared it an insult to islam. >> yes, it was a stupid film, you know. and the correct response to a stupid film on youtube is to say, it's a stupid film on youtube and you get on with the rest of your life. so, to take that, and to deliberately use it to inflame your troops, you know, is a political act. that's not about religion. that's about power. >> we just returned back to the office from the streets of islama
's another development right here in the united states. another target of muslim outrage. someone who is used to it by now. author salman rushdie. you will remember if you have a long memory that he's no stranger to this. it was iran's ayatollah khomeini who declared rushdie's 19 novel "the satanic verses" blasphemous. and then ordered a fatwa, a very long fatwa. he had to go into hiding for years. and now today, we've got more to the story. an imam in iran has decided to increase the bounty on mr. rushdie's head. so he's lived with it for two decades. living with it again. the imam says that he has not come out with the satanic verses the anti-muslim film would never have been made. for what that comment is worth. mr. rushdie talked about the film in an interview with fareed zakaria. >> this is very much a product of the outrage machine. yes, there's this stupid film. you though. and the correct response to a stupid film on youtube is to say it's a stupid film on youtube and you get on with the rest of your life. so to take that, and to deliberately use it to inflame your troops, you know, i
'm running for a second term as president of the united states. sy told you before and i will tell you again the the path i'm offering is not necessarily going to be quick or easy. because the truth is, it's going to take more than few years to solve challenges that built up over decades. but i can tell you this, virginia, this is america. our problems can be solved and our challenges can be met. we've got the best workers in the world, the best business people and entrepreneurs and scientists and researchers in the world, colleges and universities in the world. there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with the united states of america. so the path i'm offering may be harder, but it leads to a better place. i'm offering a practical, five-point plan to create jobs, and grow the middle class. and rebuild the economy on a stronger foundation. so let me break it down in case you guys missed the convention. just in case. or just in case you only saw michele. number one -- >> that was president obama speaking to a riled up crowd in woodbridge, virginia. michael hastings has been o
're running to be president of the united states. that's how it goes. and a lot of what you're seeing with the romney campaign right now is when you have sort of cascading failure. you're getting people, you know, tommy thompson said yesterday, why am i going down in polls? what do you think? i'm running with mitt romney. that doesn't help. you start having morale problems, and, you know it can all go pretty bad. the point, tim was making about, about romney's strategy, coming in late. that's a pretty perilous strategy. what obama has done is similar to what the clinton campaign did in '96. they spent tons of money early to define bob dole. by the time bob dole got around and campaigned, everybody kind of had a sense he was, you know, newt gingrich's mini me, basically and it was over for him. >> and then to the question of money, tim, you know, if you look like you're in a really tough spot and things could change with the first debate, a lot of people think that could be sort of a turning point in this race, but do your supporters run to you and say, okay. we need to get him out of
crackers in the united states senate would have ever voted for it if the pressure had not come from martin luther king and others with the civil rights movement? no way! look at healthcare reform. president obama could have ever got than passed without pressure from nurses and seniors and consumer groups and activist and labor unions around the country. no way! the truth always is, these members of congress are so entrenched that you have to have that pressure from the outside and it was only by building that pressure from the outside on the inside that president obama is able to get the affordable care act passed and yes, it is going to be the same thing with campaign finance reform. do you think these dodos are ever going to vote on their own for campaign finance reform? no, it will take a major movement on the part of the american people and pressure and demands on the part of the american people to get congress to act. so, i don't know. what do you think about this? 1-866-55-press. republicans are trying to say this

, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to degenerate the religious beliefs of others. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> reporter: elsewhere in iran, a cleric upped the bounty of the killing of the author of a book that sparked global protest after the late leader called it islam. >> yes, it's a stupid film. the correct response is to say it's a stupid film on youtube and get on with your life. to take it and deliberately use it to inflame your troops is a political act. it's not about religion. >> reporter: when asked why the pakistani government called for a national holiday today, many ways inviting protesters on the street, they told cnn they had to address public sentiment. i think it's already a decision that's been criticized by many. >> thank you. >>> the state department fending off accusations this morning that it failed to secure the u.s. consula

"those people." that ain't going to fly. >> yeah. >> "those people." >> that was bad. >> like some alien tribe among us who are just lunging for food stamps. nobody wants to be born poor in the united states of america. >> yeah. >> there's a way to do it, but -- >> i can tell you my dad also, again, unemployed for 18 months. i'll guarantee you he didn't like going to the mississippi unemployment office to get a check to keep gas in the car. >> you think people like going to food pantries? >> no. it was humiliating. he did it because he had to do it. but, again, though, i think, though, there is -- i think this is a line of demarcation. and i think it's a good opportunity. i told a good friend of ours in the romney campaign, i said, the tape's not your problem. the libyan press conference, you lost more independent voters with that stupidity than that tape. you could actually use the tape as a positive. >> let's get to massachusett
court may very well hang in the balance. >> listen, i'm the second most bipartisan in the united states senate, was recently named by washington onmagazine as the least partisan senator. >> senator brown voted in the only chance had he against a pro-choice woman. it's not just about senator brown's vote, this is about the votes of all of the republicans. jim inhoff, the senator, would become the person who would have supervision over the environmental protection agency. >> you're not running against jim inhoff. you're running against me, professor. >> more jim inhoff references in that debate than even references. >>> moving on to virginia, another race where four polls in the last two weeks have the race razor tight. fiscal issues dominated a debate moderated by nbc's david gregory who pressed both candidates to respond to romney's remarks d disparaging 47% of households that pay no federal income tax. >> you think nearly half the country see themselves as victims because they're too dependent -- >> no. i see people -- i've looked very positively of the people of virginia -- >> you wou

condemnation has given a strong message that the united states government not only condemns it, but has absolutely no support for such blasphemous videos or content anywhere. i think that is an important message. i think that should go a long way in ending the violence on many streets in the world. >> brown: but in iran, at a military parade, president mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the u.s. and others of promoting strife under the guise of protecting civil liberties. >> ( translated ): they are seeking to trigger ethnic and religious conflicts. they chant fake slogans of freedom, and claim commitment to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. >> brown: and back in pakistan, prime minister raja pervez ashraf called for the world to outlaw blasphemy. >> we are demanding that the united nations and other international organizations seek a law that bans such hate speech aimed at fomenting hatred and sowing the seeds of discord through such falsehood. >> brown: in the meantime, pakistan shut down youtube access after the web site refused to remove the anti- islamic video. and in france, auth

. that will prove costly. one thing we want to remember is that the united states went through a period where there was a sharp contraction through government. i am talking about the end of world war ii. since we have this. brief and cutbacks in government spending, the recession was painful but very brief and then we entered into a period of prolonged prosperity. we can't afford deep cutbacks and spending. we cannot afford very big increases by taxation. gerri: big increases by taxation. will that create another recession? there are lots of signs that we are going there already. >> that is true. we had indications of a worsening of business activity in europe and china. this is beginning to hurt u.s. exports. u.s. consumers and businesses, themselves, are shying away from major expenditures, especially business in terms of capital spending until fiscal cliff uncertainties are resolved. we are not going to resolve those uncertainties until we get the election out of the way. that is why these upcoming presidential debates and october will be of the utmost importance and they very much they ha

propaganda, extremist discourse, hatred of the west, especially the united states. goes on to say they expect it to expand and grow. this is in august. the president has wanted to say bin laden is dead and we're after al-qaeda. is that why this has happened? the way it's happened? >> look, the administration is either lying or is dangerously clueless. that is not getting covered by the media. that is the point that david is trying to make. you can't have a political impact if people done know about it. they are not held accountable. the president said in interview you put up we don't want to speculate about this. they did more than speculate. they did definitively what happened. they sent out ambassador rice to tell us all the stories that didn't make sense. that's why they stayed clueless. we sat there and watched nobody believes this is what happened. nobody believes it was spontaneous. they there are reports showing otherwise. the question is whether or not the media is going to follow up on the fact they've been lied to. on a couple of different things. so far, it seems like other than fo

's judgment? is because the only text you have when you're president of the united states is what do you do when you're faced with the unexpected? this is the expected, and he doesn't seem to be doing very well with it. >> when we look at the politics of this, a cnn/orc poll was released saying that 63% of all americans say, yes, when the question was asked whether he should release more tax returns. so i think, when you're dealing with tax rates, when you're dealing with fairness, especially when you're dealing in light of this 47% statement, that this is a sound political question since candidates in the past have had to do this. >> no question. and what mr. johnston said is particularly revealing. let's assume the romneys did pay 14% to 20% that the letter seems to imply, each and every year for the last 20. this year he paid about 14%. so if that were the case, then what's the reason for not releasing it? in many years, he paid more than he paid in 2011, if you believe what the accountant says. they paid up to 20%. so the damage is already done. people know, because of the way the tax c
